What Everybody Ought to Know About Rub A Dub

I got this link today from Jah Prince.

We had a convo about Rub A Dub on his radio show last week.

Rub A Dub stylee is a beloved part of reggae culture and I created an event called Rub-A-Dub ATL.

You can check out the Sunsplash Mix Show segment to hear me talk about my passion, the mission to share reggae music with my community and the world at large.

The 1 Year Anniversary on Dancehall Now “As Told By Terri K”

Here is a video of Terri K’s weekly Dancehall Now segment, “As Told By Terri K.”  She talks about her experience transitioning from a dancehall fanatic living in ATL to an on air radio personality.

“Read” by Karamanti #1 on Jamaica’s Roots FM Conscious Top 10

Every so often there comes a track that captures the attention of everyone that hears it in an inexplicable manner. Whether it is the message, the rhythm, or the flow, it simply has that it factor. Karamanti’s single “Read” is one such track.

As the name implies, the song speaks about the importance of reading and associates the degrading lyrics and images in music with the presenter’s ignorance. Since its release, the track has been getting favorable radio rotation both on the local and international scene.

In early October it entered the Conscious Top 10 chart which is featured on the program Intensity Friday, every Friday from 6pm -8pm on Roots 96.1 FM (in Jamaica). As of Friday, November 2nd, “Read” is sitting in the number one spot.

Nas and Damian Marley, Distant Relatives Album Buzz Grows


His collaboration project with Damian “Junior Gong” Marley as described by Nas himself is neither Reggae nor Hip-Hop, but perhaps World Music…  Highlanda Sound has previewed a few cuts off the album on their DaFlavaRadio.com Dancehall Now radio show with tumultuous response from listeners.  Could this be the album to really change the game?  One thing is for sure – Everyone will certainly be at least curious enough to have an opinion.  Here’s a very recent feature courtesy of hiphopnews24-7.com that’s worth checking out.
